the obama administration insisted the assault was a protest that got out of hand. fox news confirmed u.s. intelligence did indeed know it was a terror attack of 24 hours of that evening. bill: yesterday the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details wi
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time t
and an entrepreneur. and associated -- the obama administration -- there's a european financial crisis, he understands financial instruments, and erskine bowles is a different dynamic. really going to do that. you want to make a deal with republicans and he is the guy to do it but larry as different depending on how you approach it. the wall street firms are going around. with larry taking the job, and natural successor at black rock. i just -- maybe he does. melissa: such a massive pay cut. [talking over each other] charlie: erskine bowles is no stranger to wall street. melissa: the president wouldn't be running for reelection again so he doesn't care, a best buddy at wall street. [talking over each other] melissa: such a great knowledge of the industry. charlie: you could also make the point that the last thing he needs is a base going nuts and boycotting midterms. he gets the same thing anyway. melissa: the risk that he is good and worth it and gets political backlash. charlie: you think tim geithner is good? the fact that you don't answer that says a lot and i tell you the fresen -- not necessaril
is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do it anymore. and the democrats, john kerry coming nearly 1990's, joe lieberman in the early 1990's and others, said maybe this time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down that road. but that has all gone. i have spoken with republican politicians. why is that? and the answer was that we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it is just not w
your advisers are, in essence, giving the obama administration -- giving the obama debate team the play that they are going to run as if this president isn't going to be prepared to counter anything. i don't know what kind of campaign they are running and the last thing i would do is publicize my strategy in the first debate. >> i think you're right. >> the only thing i think more alarming about publishing your strategy before the debate is that they are going at what has been a weak point of mr. romney. i mean, just this week he's had to defend himself against accusation that he's been fast and loose with facts. look at this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's been anything amiss, we correct it or remove it. >> so the fact that the media has called him on things that seem to be full of falsehoods, the irony here is that you're going to use that as your strategy? >> i think it's the only thing that they have left that they believe they can put the obama campaign back on the defensive. i agree with joe. it's surprising that they are putting this forward and it has to b
action until a new administration comes in, either romney or barack obama in the second term. secondly, the administration has been certainly cautious about a sort of intervention, military intervention in syria. libya and syria are apples and oranges that they are quite different. libya was isolated regionally and internationally in a way that syria is not. it has the support of her rant, support russia as well as other countries that complicate the regional level and international level. finally, there've been calls to record the safe havens. i'm not a military expert, but everyone i console say that requires a no-fly zone. syria has mr. advanced and sophisticated system provided by the russians that libya did not have. there'll be much more difficult and dangerous for an assertive u.s. coalition coalition to go when in terms of military intervention to create safe havens, establish no-fly zones. even in libya it was nec and syria again is just a much more difficult situation militarily. >> host: the title of your book, "syria: the fall of the house of assad," why that title? >> gues
's very easy to say here the obama administration and our government is not doing their job. i'm asking the american citizens at the end of the day, what are you doing to help the deconstruction of the complex issue to support democratic everywhere? if you're serious about democracy here, you have to be serious about democracy, and democracy's about explaning and complexity about tensions about understanding from behind the scene what is happening so this is one answer to the question. .. then begin the populist and religious, and the canadian populace to neocon we have to be equipped. when newton and intellectuals humbling. i mean it. i mean it. an intellectual geoid is really a freer serious about democracy , really have to understand that we have to discipline our minds exist -- resisting emotional politics. if we don't get it so quickly and motions are misleading. in the arab world when it comes to women, if you're good in the speak about women's rights. of sorry. announcing the spectrum coming from the west. i'm saying this in the name of islam because you're not respecting the mus
the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t
of preemptive strike against iran, imagine that happens, what does the obama administration do if it's still in power come november and the election? what do you do? >> well, i mean, that's the dilemma in terms of turning to military action that may well be necessary at some point. israel probably has -- certainly has the capability to in some ways delay, you know, the advance towards that nuclear line, but perhaps does not have the ability to destroy the entire program. and that's the conundrum when you get to military action is in many respects, if you start this fight, one of two things has to happen. you have to continue to regime change as we did in iraq. that's a legitimate policy option but obviously a very expensive one. but the other is should it not destroy iran's nuclear program, you probably make that iranian bomb inevitable, because you can destroy facilities but you can't destroy knowledge. >> richard williamson, let's assume mitt romney wins in november. his rhetoric has been even stronger against president ahmadinejad and iran. what would a romney administration do if israel
evening and terrific weekend. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the obama administration tonight is embroiled in a widening controversy with new questions asked of the president and white house of the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three others. john kerry is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinton's
a short time ago congressman mike rogers suggesting the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath in the attack on the consulate in libya. spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> rogers who told fox one day after the attack that it was indeed terrorism saying tonight that this statement from the director of national intelligence friday the nation's top intelligence official appeared to be an effort to object secure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about. this again, americans need to understand the truth. and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> fox news asked the administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows. over four military officials including white house te

.s. officials as an eruption of anger at an anti-islam film. the obama administration has since reversed that appraisal and now calls it a well coordinated terrorist attack. but questions have mounted over the shifting assessments. and today two republican congressmen, oversight committee chairman darrell issa of california and jays leveled new allegations. in a letter to secretary of state clinton, they charged washington rejected multiple requests for security improvements at been gas emission. they base their assertions on unidentified sources described as multiple u.s. federal government officials. the state department spokeswoman said the secretary would respond in writing this very day. >> her response is going to be relatively succinct today, as i said, expressing her complete commitment to work with the congress to get fully to the bottom of this. but i don't anticipate she'll be able to answer the specific questions today >> warner: the two congressmen say their committee will hold a hearing next wednesday on the libya attack. meanwhile the f.b.i. has sent a team to libya to det
. this is nothing new to the obama administration. but it is new to hear him speak at length on this issue. so maybe what it will do is to open people's eyes to what's happening to women and girls in this country, specifically. >> victoria? >> the rhetoric used, where it's slavery. you don't have a choice. you didn't leave because you couldn't. and i wanted to talk about one sub segment of sex trafficking which deals with latin american women. over the past two decades what we've seen these immigrant smugglers going to small towns in mexico, very poor villages and saying hey, we can get you a job cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables. it's going to cost about $2,000 but you can pay that off once you cross the border. so they come over and you fall into the same pattern of sexual abuse and tell you you're not worth it, it's your fault. >> and you have a debt to repay. >> on top of that, you don't know english and there is the threat of being undocumented that i can call ins at any moment if you don't do what i say. add on the threats and the women never leave unless there's an external force that come
consensus. you just look at what the obama administration is doing. it is not that different. given that there is that consensus, it is also one of the reasons why it is in the national security area. >> this will be our last question. >> any predictions for retirement at the end of the term? >> a lot would depend on who the next president is. we have several justices who are getting older. the honorable thing to do is seen as being retiring during the term. you can see her now that she has accomplished. she tries to make a record. she will accomplish that in 2014. if president obama is there macy scalia or kennedy retire. it makes a huge potential shift in the court based on the next president. he could have one or two or three additional nominees. that we give you president obama the opportunity to appoint the majority of the members of the supreme court. or it will give president romney the chance to possibly shift the balance. anyone replacing justice kennedy was certainly affect the balance, make it a solid liberal are solidly conservative court. >> he said retirement during th
of the obama administration. if i understand it correctly, i was busy dodging other kinds of projectiles in iraq at the time. if i understand this correctly, this is a deeply idealistic effort to try to say, we are not only going to give money, not only have an impact with a fairly large, civilian assistance program to balance our ongoing military commitment to pakistan, but we are also going to set up a structure or relationship to what is generally called the strategic partnership to try to mbreak out of that pattern. after 2008 and 2009, those of you who knew richard knew the hurricane hit pakistan and there was a set of very ambitious goals that were put in to try to build a long-term commitment to pakistan. i use long-term advisedly. america is focused on the counter-terrorism after post- 9/11. by the almost a pistol logical elements -- epistemological element, this was to balance that short-term set of needs. american safety, the safety of the pack as any people. to balance that with a commitment of long-term stability, and a vision with pakistan of a long-term stability in pakista
. 80 points higher, 13-5. the romney-ryan ticket criticizing the obama administration's handling of the libyan situation. by failing to maintaining our influence and stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. now, here is what paul ryan said to chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> their response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know that it's a planned tres attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be tragedy in and of itself. the fact that it's part of a bigger picture the obama foreign policy is literally unravelling before our eyes on the tv screens. stuart: and look at this one, the white house is trying to pass through 450 million dollars in aid in egypt supposed to help the muslim brotherhood to transform into democracy. the republicans in congress are trying to block it. the issue in cairo, warning to missionaries living especially women in cairo, should take precautions to protect themselves. and time is money. 30 se
in the security effort. we founded the obama administration the strength of the renewed cooperation to face the common problems under the principles of shared response of the. but there is no doubt that much more must be done. particularly when it comes to dismantling the financial operation of criminal organizations in the u.s. and reducing the american demand. we should get to the root of the problem which is the increasing demand for the legal growth in the u.s.. as long as the market continues to growing money will keep flowing to the pockets of the criminals. and of course the best way will be to reduce the demand in the u.s.. but frankly speaking that is not possible. alternative solutions must be considered for the massive profits of the criminal organizations, and that includes the market alternatives that prevent drug trafficking and were causing so much violence. there is another problem that has become vital to the security of mexico and many other nations. how did the uncontrolled weapons to the criminal organizations. with limited access to key factor in the strength of the cri
's administration but the next most likely candidate is john kerry of the senate foreign relations committee. obama knows him from his time in the senate. he thought he would get it before hillary and it is likely to be one of those two. cheryl: before i let you go, syria. the situation continues to head downhill. will we get any more involvement? the russians are very involved. >> the russians are propping up the assad regime and are prepared to shed a lot of blood before it goes down. i don't think the president will do anything before november 6th. the rebels are having some success in the past weeks while we have been otherwise occupied the best prescription i have is more fighting and more killing as far as the eye can see. cheryl: thank you very much. great to have you this week. thank you. dennis: the fiscal cliff is the biggest near-term threat to the global economy. so says fitch ratings in a new report. our next guest believes the fiscal cliff will hurt the u.s. economy the rest of the year. jeremy lawson is senior economist. i am sorry to be naive but can i just hope that because of the
't know precisely how the obama administration proposes to raise the top corporate rate to on 28%. we don't know how mitt romney proposes to lower the corporate rate to 20%, 25%, i forget which one, because they haven't identified the loopholes. >> but that's linchpin of the whole campaign is around taxes, is around lowering taxes and is around -- >> actually, it's not. actually, it's not because if you remember, andrew, in his convention speech, he didn't especially mention his individual tax cut. and he went out on the road last week and said by the way, i'm going to cut tax rates, but don't expect a big tax cut because i'm going to take away deductions. so romney in fact and i've talked to romney's strategists about this, they know that voters don't actually believe that you're going to have a big net tax cut for anybody. it's not credible. >> the linchpin of the entire plan is to raise taxes on people 250 or above, which does nothing for the definite sit, does nothing with entitlements. not only are you not talking details, all you have is raising tax on people that have money and tal
. the administration -- but romney and obama believe in supporting the opposition. i think this administration has recognized that the most important thing we can do is create a unified political opposition so that the when the sovereign regime falls, we will have a transition as soon as possible. without a clear exit strategy, which by the way it romney said it is how he would think about military affairs, the president understands we need to keep all options on the table and be cautious about it. there are many ways to make the situation worse, rather than better. we want to get the diplomatic contacts read so that there can be a smooth transition while also -- diplomatic context so that there can be a switcsmooth transition. this administration has been at the forefront on putting pressures on the regime. i am not sure that romney will read position is that much different. >> i will open it up to questions from the press. >> one of the country that was mentioned was -- i guess the question i have is, if obama has a second term, how long could to go before you had to make a decision about whethe
, the administration of george w. bush, and also president obama's cairo speech, major u.s. officials have acknowledged -- condi rice as a secretary of state gave it a promise beach that the nine states had supported authoritarian regimes and it ultimately would be on the wrong side of history and time for a breath of fresh air and the democratic revolution to move to the muslim world. president obama's speech in cairo early in his presidency attempted to do the same thing and breed some sense of liberalism into the muslim world. the difficulty, as you point out, is memories are long and people remember that for a long time in the interest of stability during the cold war, the authoritarian dictator maybe an sob but he is our s.o.b. -- and even after the cold war when it came to some arab regimes, we were willing to purchase strongmen who would at least have a reasonable relationship with israel. we can't be surprised, as you point out, that when these democratic openings occur, some of the people owe were most mobilize are those who worked in a sense outlawed as political parties, and in many cases th
reserves of shale gas. and spokesman for mitt romney says the obama administration should formally their china a currency manipulator. semiannual report due on the topic released by treasury in mid october. >> it had stopped for a while and yuan was slowly moving up, but then with all the pressures with their economy, it's kind of turned around. >> when you start messing around with china as a political football on either side, election nearing and -- >> and tensions between china and japan got pretty bad. i heard the lexus is going to be slowing down production because wealthy people don't want to buy a japanese luxury sedan. >> a lot of people that were wealthy aren't quite as wealthy as they used to be. i think trump was always railing about china, too. >> in other news out of washington, the white house is reportedly prepare to go direct federal agencies to develop guidelines for owners of power, water and other infrastructure facilities. it would give the agencies 90 days to propose new regulations and create a new cyber security council at the department of homeland security.
remain in place. still remain secure. >> we hope he is right. last month, president obama said his administration made clear to the syrian regime that if we start seeing a government moving around, quote: a whole bunch of weapons that would be a red line. so far there is no word from the white house about whether this latest movement means syria has crossed that red line. but the white house is taking other steps. we know that to target the syrian regime. in fact, today, secretary of state hillary clinton attended a meeting at the united nations and pledged another $45 million to help the opposition in syria. those rebels who are trying to force out their brutal and bloody leader. it's fox top story and jonathan hunt is in it -- on it live at the united nations tonight. do we have any indication of what those rebels, who are opposing rat jesus' name plan to do with that money? >> well, what we are told by 15 million of the 45 million will go towards communication equipment for the rebels. something that the u.s. has previously funded. the other 30 million, according to secretary o
investment and let's not forget what you had over the last few years is government policies out of the obama administration that will make the auto industry less competitive in the long run because what they have done is made it harder to manufacture in the united states and harder to create jobs here and if we're going to have a u.s. auto industry that is sustainable in the long run, what mitt romney is committed to, we have to change policy and that's what mitt romney will do. >> the argument might ring hollow to someone who is an auto worker in ohio who is suddenly getting more hours, right, the overtime that he hadn't gotten the last three years. >> well, ultimately that's want because of what the president did. we don't believe it is because of what the president did. we believe it is because of the resilience of the american people. the question is what's going to get the auto industry steady for the long run. the answer is not increased government involvement. it is policies that will create greater job creation and greater manufacturing in the united states and those are the policies
, suddenly would walk away. >> president obama's comments come as his administration faces scrutiny for deporting and detaining a record number of undocumented people, nearly 400,000 immigrants were deported during the last fiscal year. the republican presidential nominee mitt romney also fielded questions about immigration during a wednesday appearance on univision. romney attacked obama is deferred action policy that allows some young undocumented people to remain in the country temporarily, saying more, the solution was needed. romney was accused in the appearance of avoiding specific details about a possible permanent solution and asked to respond with a yes or no on whether he would deport undocumented youth. >> we're not going to round up people around the country and deport them. i said during my primary campaigns, we're not when the round of 12 million people -- including kids and parents -- and have everyone deported. we need to provide a long-term solution. i have described the fact i would be in support of a program that said people who served in our military could be per
administrations most recently the obama white house. he's a middle east diplomacy analyst for msnbc and with the washington institute. so dennis, what about the speech today and the criticism you've heard from dan senor that the president is cmuniti wesslmin the military threat off the table by privately communicating and signaling that we really, really don't want to go to war? >> well, i don't think he did that in today's eech. i don't think he personally has done it. he has made it car the ctisreioot containment, meaning we will prevent an iran from having nuclear weapons, not simply contain and live with it if it gets it. that has an implication if diplomacy fas. number two, there's been a dramatic buildup in terms of our lflitary forces in theersi avwori battle groups in the persian gulf. the question is, is iran under pressure to affect their behavior? obviously the president has succeeded in putting together a coalition that has put iran over enormous pressure economically, military, says and said it again today, that he would like to give diplomacy a chance, but he also sai
to the upcoming november elections, the administration is taking another swing at china. meanwhile, president obama this afternoon taking steps to block a chinese-owned company from acquiring facilities in oregon. but there may be a lot more to this story than meets the eye. amon is in washington. >> hi, maria. an extraordinary releases this afternoon from the united states government. the first thing we got was this order from president barack obama ordering the company to divest from a wind project in oregon using the so-called sifieuos program. this one is the fist time in 22 years that the u.s. government has done this it or president of the united states has done this. it goes beyond what we've ever seen before, including this language ordering the facility in oregon to effectively be rai razed, saying the company must remove all structures, items, or physical object, including the concrete foundations of the property. that's the first time anyone ever affiliated with this has ever seen anything like that. the treasury department later in the day issuing a statement saying why they might
of the problems that the administration has is that they never proposed the original stimulus bill. it was written in congress. they never proposed an obama care bill, it was written in congress. dodd/frank was written in congress. i think the administration, the role of the executive is to send down a piece of legislation that is an anchor that doesn't let things go too far one way or the other. and i think their mistake in their first two years when they had overwhelming majorities was the administration never laid down an anchor. >> do you think they've learned from those mistakes? >> never in history has a second term been better than a first term. and i think that's important to keep in mind. >> whoa, whoa. clinton. >> well, president clinton's, remember the budget deal was signed in the first term. but the second term was dominated by impeachment. >> the tabloids would say the second term was much better. i'm sorry. you get into the stock picks when we come back, we're going to do that. we're going to have to go right to you. you ready? you got them? >> i'm ready. >> what do you got? one sto
prices double where they were when barack obama took over. these are really tough challenges. what do you think is the quick fix, if you were going to be the incumbent come november the 7th, what kind of thing should the american administration, whoever it is, be looking to do quite quickly to try and stem this economic tide downwards which is going on all over the world. >> right. first of all, it's an incredibly difficult time for people in positions of leadership. when i compare my economic circumstances, i was completely blessed in that sense with the way the leaders have got to handle this thing today. for the united states, it's simple. they have to resolve this so-called fiscal cliff and set out a path to putting their house in order and by the way, i think that will happen. one of the things about america which is why, you know, i think whatever their issues and challenges, they'll sort of come through it. they will, i think, after the election, settle down and get this thing done. it's interesting, by the way, four years ago, europeans were worried about whether the american econ
